Staub is a household name in France and around the world for their enamelled cookware, which has all the benefits of cast iron—namely the ability to absorb and retain intense heat, resulting in perfectly browned meat, vegetables, and baked goods—but there is no special clean-up required. This material ensures food stays warm for as long as possible once off heat. The enamel prevents the pan from rusting and, thanks to its heavy-duty construction, it will not warp. (Though it is dishwasher-safe, we recommend hand washing only.) This fondue set, in a beautiful White Truffle colour and an embossed finish, can be used on the hob or at the table with the included burner holder (ignition paste must be purchased separately). It includes six colour-coded fondue forks to avoid confusion. The burner holder fits neatly inside the pot for easy storage.

About The Brand
Staub hails from Alsace, France, a region world famous for its gastronomy. They specialise in cast iron and ceramic cookware for both home cooks and professionals, and are most well known for their iconic enamelled cast iron pots, or cocottes. What makes their cocottes different is the use of slightly textured black enamel, which lets cooks enjoy all the benefits of cast iron cookware, such as the high heat tolerance and retention, without the effort of seasoning or avoiding washing up liquid, which would normally cause cast iron to corrode. Their patented lids are ‘self-basting’, meaning they are designed to circulate liquids within the pot, preserving flavour and moisture. (In tests conducted after a cooking time of 55 minutes, 10% more moisture was found in a Staub cocotte than in competitive products.) Their extensive range of enamelled cast iron frying pans, griddles, fondue pots, tagines and more are similarly user-friendly.
Staub products combine traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology. During production, each piece of cookware is inspected visually or technically 100 times to ensure that their strict quality standards are met.Shop Staub
